Time to stop and clean up

Here's a social story that I wrote today for a student. As I was reading it with him, I realized that I could very easily rewrite it for myself with before bed projects.

My name is Jaime.

I am in Ms. Johnson's first grade class.

In class we do a lot of work.

Sometimes we cut.

Sometimes we write.

Sometimes we glue.

Sometimes we read.

Sometimes we have to stop before we are finished

with our work. It’s okay.

When it is time to stop, Ms. Johnson will say “It’s time to stop.”

She might give me a “Time to Stop” card.

I will try to listen to Ms. Johnson. When it is time to stop, I will try to put my scissors, pencils and glue away.

Ms. Johnson is happy when I listen and clean up when it’s time to stop.
